+ This excerpt is from Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson. I read this and was so moved. Damn.

"As it is, I can't settle, I want someone who is fierce and will love me until death and know that love is as strong as death, and be on my side for ever and ever. I want someone who will destroy and be destroyed by me. There are many forms of love and affection, some people can spend their whole lives together without knowing each other's names. Naming is a difficult and time-consuming process; it concerns essences, and it means power. But on the wild nights who can call you home? Only the one who knows your name. Romantic love has been diluted into paperback form and has sold thousands and millions of copies. Somewhere it is still in the original, written on tablets of stone. I would cross seas and suffer sunstroke and give away all I have, but not for a man, because they want to be the destroyer and never the destroyed."

+ SYTYCD Final 4! Love it. I cannot believe this season is almost over. Didn`t it just start?

I have no words for this performance, and I usually have words for most things. Just...speechless.

So, I`m pretty much in love with this commercial. The dialogue and music is glorious.

 + So my birthday was this past weekend. It was pretty good. Two of my friends from home flew down to spend the weekend with me. That might not have been the smartest idea. I can never understand or fully fathom how someone can make something about them when it`s someone elses birthday. Selfishness is so unsightly, and it harshly demeans one`s character. So it might be a good minute before said friend returns to visit again. Other than that little mess, my birthday was good. Went to the bar, the mall, the club, the beach and managed to get a whopping 6 hours of sleep the ENTIRE weekend. Fun times. Getting older is interesting.

+ I start my new job on Saturday!

+ So I`m slowly getting into Gossip Girl. I`d only seen a couple episodes before the hiatus. I`m actually really liking it right now though. This is probably the first show I`ve watched were I pretty much LOVE all the characters. That`s beyond a rariety for me. And I think I`m really liking Nate/Vanessa at the moment.

+ All this trivial nonsense regarding Sophia hate on the internet lately is so stupid. People are so quick to throw stones over NOTHING. Of course she doesn`t want to have to film romantic scenes with her ex. Especially when he`s an asshat and she`s ALREADY been through that, when they were seperated and going through a divorce no less. 100% of the people complaining lack the strength and the tenacity she showcased when filming said scenes with him the first time, let alone the second time around.

+ Leona Lewis has a voice on her. That girl can blow, no joke. I was listening to some songs off her album and her covers of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and Summertime are amazing. She`s got pipes.

+ Addison`s back on GA tonight! I have not been this excited for an episode of GA in ages. Eeek. I can`t wait. Kate Walsh is the business.

+21 days until the premiere of So You Think You Can Dance! This season is going to be beyond stellar. I can feel it!
